This easy berry vodka smash makes a cocktail that looks beautiful and tastes seriously refreshing, featuring blackberries or raspberries, mint, and lime.


  • 1/4 lime, cut into 2 wedges
  • 5 large mint leaves
  • 8 raspberries or blackberries
  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) vodka
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) maple syrup or simple syrup
  • Soda water, for serving
  • Crushed ice, for serving


  1. Place the lime, mint leaves, and berries in cocktail shaker. Muddle (gently mash) them 4 to 5 times to extract their flavor. (Here’s more on How to Muddle Mint.)
  2. Add the vodka, maple syrup and 4 ice cubes. Shake until cold, then pour everything into a glass. Serve with crushed ice.
